Well, today is the day that you either love or hate.  Valentine’s Day–the day young lovers break the bank to express their affections for one another.

This morning, the Latin Club delivered their fundraising carnations tied with messages of sweet nothings.  Some other club delivered cupcakes.  Office aides delivered flowers and balloons to unsuspecting girls (and maybe even a few guys). 

On this day of romantic love, it’s easy to be jealous or lonely if you’re not on the receiving side of all this gift-giving. 

Thankfully, students like Morgan Rachel Turbiner are trying to ease those feelings.  Armed with baskets of flowers, she plans to pass out each flower one-by-one to the people who look like they need a pick-me-up. 

Some friends, like Abigail Nichols and Kaylie Miller, exchanged gifts with one another just because.  “It’s a Rice Krispie kiss because she’s so sweet she put Hershey’s out of business,” remarked Abigail. 

A student who prefers to remain anonymous passed out her gifted bouquet of flowers to her second block.  “I’m not supposed to be dating this guy.”  Forbidden love.  Sigh.

If you’re feeling lonely today, maybe you’re not hanging around the right people.  There seems to be plenty of love for everyone.
